The first public beta of the next Mac operating system is now available. Here’s how to install it.
After releasing several betas reserved for developers, Apple has released the first public betas of all its operating systems. MacOS Ventura, which is apparently part of it, can now be installed by normal people.
However, while the new features introduced in this new version may catch your eye, installing a version of macOS still in development is not made easy. Although relatively stable at this point, Apple’s next operating system is still prone to bugs. So this detail should be kept in mind if you decide to install it. Also, it is very strongly recommended that you do not install this public beta on your main computer.
We can only recommend installing MacOS Ventura on a secondary computer to safely test the new features. The process to access this macOS public beta is relatively simple, but you must be enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program. Here’s how.
